“Good place to stay”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Good guesthouse, quite clean and friendly staff. If you arrange it with them, they pick you up in the airport for free. It's pretty close and you will be grateful for its allocation, cause isn't exactly at the busy Thamel neighborhood but is well located from the Durbar Square and the main interesting points of the area.

The service is good and if you have any problem they try to fix it. The manager arranges you travels and other stuff, but in general, all the food that they serve and the tourist services, as well as the change rate is higher than normal. If you want to change money, go and search around Thamel for an exchange bureau.

We had dinner one day and it was average, but little bit expensive,

About cleaning stuff is pretty comfortable, but sometimes hot water wastes and you have to take a cold shower. They have wifii as well, and it works fine.The rooftop is cool to have some beers, and normally theres no one there (at least during november).

This quiet guest house on the edge of the Thamel area provides an efficient range of services. Rooms vary in price depending of the floor and there is a delighful terrace on the roof where you can escape from the grime and bussle of the streets.

If you want to feel like home, stay here. Service is the best. Young and new generation of staff. In Kathmandu, hotel is just a place for sleep but service and facilities might come first. This place can offer you everything. Wifi, Computer, Hot Shower and also the good young chef. The Location is also perfect in Thamel, walk 10 mins to Dubar Square. Feel free to contact this hotel and you will be happy in Nepal

Travelling from India to Kathmandu it was like a breath of fresh air to be hosted by Tarun and his team. We arrived by an overnight bus, not having an idea where to get off, staff members got into the bus just after 4am at a stop and assisted us to get to the guest house. I couldn't believe the level of service!!!! The rooms were clean, the showers VERY hot. Internet was available and the breakfast was good!! The rooftop view from the guest house is also amazing. I cannot express enough how wonderful the hospitality was. Most recommendable!!!

I arrived at katmandu airport not knowing where i was going to stay. Some friends had made arrangements with Mr Tarun Kumar through a travel agent. They had arrived the night before and were all sleepy. The driver reminded them that i should be picked up. From the time i set footin the place we were treated as special guests and Tarun helped us plan some trekking routes. He helped us come up with sutable routes for the short timeframe we had.
Amongst allthe oyher crazy experiences in Kathmandu it was a pleasure to be able to depend on Madhuban guest house for steadfast service.

Thanks from Me andteam south africa

Room Tip: Shower in the evening just aftersunset to ensure that you get hot water :-)

Not a classic hotel but house friendly. We travelled in beginning of Nov'12,beginning of winter, rm was chilly especially in the evenings & early mornings. The bed spread was a thick quilt to keep the bed warm + hot water for shower + western toilet.We stayed on the lower floor as to avoid walking up staircase.Rm comes with daily breakfast, hot barley porridge with hot milk (yum) +continental breakfast.
Blackout: Daily from 6pm to 5-6am but there is generator as a backup which kicks in as soon as power is cut off.
Free wifi for guests.
Location: centre of Thamel good area for shopping , restaurants & for daily walks as there is so much to see.
Tours: Manager a very friendly guy, organised our trip to Pokhara
Overall friendly & helpful staff.

Room Tip: Lower floor for Seniors because of winding staircase

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights and came back for another 5 nights. The staff is great, very friendly and helpful. They have a TV and hot showers (sometimes). Great location near cheap food and not in the middle of crazy Thamel. When we extended our stay two times in a row the staff was accommodating. Rooms are pretty clean and also very spacious. There is a beautiful and relaxing roof top area. All in all I would definitely recommend this hotel!!!
